During the event, participants will run, walk and play across the course and enjoy the glow dust along the way. In addition to the run, there will be an after party with more color and music! The goal will be to see how much a person can really be covered in color, as every 10 minutes more color will be thrown into the air. NR Road Racing invites everyone and their family and friends to come out and have a glowing good night while supporting Dayton’s Crayons to Classrooms.
Dayton Crayons to Classrooms (DC2C) is a free store for teachers from under-funded K-12 schools that serve children living in poverty in Ohio’s Miami Valley. In partnership with local businesses, individual donors, and community volunteers, DC2C lifts at-risk children’s level and love of learning by collecting and distributing donated supplies and surplus products for use in the classroom. Teachers from eligible schools are invited to “shop” for what they need in our retail-style free store in the Goodwill Easter Seals Miami Valley building in Dayton, Ohio.
“Crayons to Classrooms is very happy and appreciative to benefit from the Glow in the Night 5K put on by NR Road Racing. It is a fun event that will support the mission of our organization -- to collect and provide school supplies at no cost to teachers of students in need.” - Deb Seger, Fund Development Manager.
